Here are my current UserPreferencesMask findings (but I don't say the list is complete B) ):

Unofficial UserPreferencesMask reference.

If anyone find out more info, please share. ;)

________________________________________

Edit: Just a note - I believe the list is presently almost complete, maybe there could be new bits used in the Windows Vista, but I haven't tested it yet...

Edit2: I removed the codebox and the old txt file, to download new one, just check out the post below.

Here is the official info from Microsoft for Windows 2000, XP shouldn't be too far off. http://www.microsoft...8.mspx?mfr=true

Just use Calc to convert between hex and binary and back again.

Regarding UserPreferencesMask, in the picture there are Flat menus and Shadow under menus tweaks enabled. The rest (i.e. graphics) would depend on an applied Visual style. (I suppose that the screenshot is taken from an application like OfficeXP.)

; a file with INF extension:
[Version]
Signature="$Windows NT$"

[DefaultInstall]
BitReg=Tweak

[Tweak]
HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","UserPreferencesMask",1,0x02,2
HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","UserPreferencesMask",1,0x04,2

Thanks for the answer.
Does anybody know a Windows Classic Theme with menus in Office XP style?

BTW, you should use the API to set this instead of hacking the registry directly. See http://blogs.msdn.co.../09/390706.aspx (The API is SystemParametersInfo). That way, you can get the changes you want without needing to logoff/logon.

1) Save the text to VisualTweaks.INF (Please note that it has the .INF extension and not the .REG extension). I use a .INF file because it allows for bit-wise operations and a .REG does not allow bit-wise operations.

2) Edit the VisualTweaks.ING and at the end of the file you will find lines that contain stringname=value. You only need to modify each value to the desired setting.

3) Run the following command to apply the VisualTweaks.INF:
 
[Version]
Signature=$CHICAGO$

; [DefaultInstall] section
; AddReg directive indicates the names of sections that contain settings you want to add to the registry.
; DelReg directive indicates the names of sections that contain settings to delete.

; subkey = Subkey to create or the subkey in which to add or change a value. This is optional.
; value = Name of the value to create or modify if it exists. This value is optional. If value is ommitted and the flags

; 0x00000020 Set value only if it already exists. Combine this flag with others by ORing.
; 0x00001000 Make change to 64-bit registry. If not specified, change is made to native reg. Combine this flag with others by ORing.
; 0x00004000 Make change to 32-bit registry. If not specified, change is made to native reg. Combine this flag with others by ORing.

; 0x00004000 Make the specified change in the 32-bit registry. Combine this flag with others by ORing.
; 0x00018002 If value is REG_MULTI_SZ, remove all strings matching the string indicated by data

;
; [bit-registry-sections] must be uniquely named and can contain multiple entries.
; rootkey, [subkey], value, [flags], mask, byte
; rootkey = Rootkey containing the key or value. HKCR, HKCU, HKLM, HKU

; mask = Byte-sized mask specifying the bits to set or clear in the specified byte of value. Specify this mask in hex.
; Bits that are 1 will be set or cleared, depending on flags. Bits that are 0 will be ignored.
; byte = Specifies the byte position in value to which you want to apply mask. The left-most byte is 0. The next is 1, 2, 3...
; NOTE: Windows XP stores REG_DWORD values in reverse byte order when specifying which byte on which to apply mask. Thus,
; REG_DWORD values have the right-most byte stored first in memory.

Is it supposed to say "2) Edit the VisualTweaks.ING " with an .ING or is that a typo, I assume?
